Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: June of 2017
Categories: Donald Trump
Donald Trump called Ukraine by the wrong name and one that Ukrainians immensely dislike during a meeting with President Petro Poroshenko. Trump stated that it was a "great honor to be with President Poroshenko of the Ukraine." Ukrainians dislike when people say "the" before Ukraine because of its geopolitical implications and the country's history of being a USSR satellite state during the Cold War.
